The British Redcoat : 1740-93 Paperback

Illustrated by Richard Hook

Part of the Warrior S. series


During this period, the British army earned itself a formidable reputation as a fighting force.

However, due to its role as a police force at home, and demonisation by American propaganda during the American Revolution (1763-1776), the army was viewed as little removed from a penal institution run by aristocratic dilettantes.

This view, still held by many today, is challenged by Stuart Reid, who paints a picture of an increasingly professional force.

This was an important time of change and improvement for the British Army, and British Redcoat 1740-1793 fully brings this out in its comprehensive examination of the lives, conditions and experiences of the late 18th-century infantryman
